He'd be sitting on the bench all season probably behind Fournier, Ross and maybe even Fultz. Due to the continuity that they were hoping for over the summer.... they now have 30 million invested in the sg position ahead of him. Yes... there is definitely a chance that he could outplay both and be a huge steal.... but that can be hard to determine especially since other players have looked amazing in SL as well.... just to be decent or worse on the NBA court.
Based on the STAT tracking company that everyone was happy that we were apart of... Chuma is a gem at 16.... soooooooo.... yeah. It's not like they blindly made the decision without a plan. Like they are doing with everyone else.... let them take their time and more to get healthy. watching cousin's go down again and again.... and shoot even durant.... makes you realize... ain't no need to rush. :-/
Instad we have Chuma who will not play whole season and when he returns he will in rotation behind Isaac, Aminu and Gordon and also never play
Chuma was projeceted to be second round pick, you can twist facts all you want, nothing will change it.
How avoid injury? Simple, don't draft player that has one. Especially when that player is reach AND plays position you don't need AND won't play for whole calendar year.
They drafted Jackson in second round last year and dropped him after 5 months. Iwundu and Frazier are doing also nothing.
NAW would have more than enough time to get some PT, and getting 1 minute whole season will still be 1 min more than Chuma will.
